My objective in making this presentation today is very simply to discuss why hemp has so small a share of the textile fibres market; to examine in a little detail the technological and other reasons which, at present, prevent is from increasing this share; to try and identify the size of the potential market for these fibres should we manage to overcome these problems and finally to assess the possibilities of overcoming these technical and other disadvantages and so putting hemp in a position to increase its penetration of the textile market.
